Inherent Vice Trailer (2015)

Trailer for Inherent Vice.

When private eye Doc Sportello's ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a loony bin... well, easy for her to say.

It's the tail end of the psychedelic '60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that "love" is another of those words going around at the moment, like "trip" or "groovy," that's being way too overused—except this one usually leads to trouble.

With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover, and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists... Part surf noir, part psychedelic romp - all Thomas Pynchon.

Inherent Vice comes with a number of firsts. Besides being the first ever film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel, this is the first Paul Thomas Anderson feature to be distributed by a major studio since Punch-Drunk Love.

Trailer looks terrific. Great editing, great track selection, and the scene with Josh Brolin attempting to communicate at the counter had me howling.
